About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores the course and causes of the worldwide diffusion of democracy through an assessment of the political and ecomic development of individual countries from the year 1800 to 2005. Using this extended range of data and examining multiple variables, Barbara Wejnert creates a conceptual model for the diffusion of democracy and to measure national democratization. The author characterizes each nation's political system, its networking with other countries, level of development, and media advancement, in order to pinpoint what leads to national and regional progress to, or regress from, democratization. Her invative findings challenge established thinking and reveal that the growth of literacy does t lead to democratization but is instead an outcome of democracy. She also finds that networks between n-democratic and democratic states are more important to a nation's democratization than financial aid given to n-democratic regimes or the level of national development.
